HELP! My alarm is just randomly going off?

Had the factory alarm activated early this week. And its randomly gone off like 5 times this week? It will be in my garage NOT LOCKED, windows up, keys sitting in the cup holder and I'll go out to get something out of it. Open the door get what I need, shut the door and the alarm frickin goes off?

Two nights ago it was sitting in the driveway, not locked, went out to get something - opened the door and it goes off???

I search the forum and haven't seen anyone else having this issue? Any ideas? What's the deal?

That's what it is supposed to do when you set them to arm automatically.
It sets the alarm after the doors are closed for 30 seconds without the key in the ignition. If you open them without the key fob the alarm goes off.

So let me get this straight... the truck arms itself after 30 seconds even if I don't click lock on the remote? And then in order to get in the truck without the alarm going off I have to click the unlock button to disarm?

wow, what a terrible system... what a stupid idea by toyota...

maybe they will be able to fix it, so it only arms after 30 seconds when it is locked?

I don't have mine turned on, but I thought that it locked itself.
I guess they did that so it would not lock the keys inside???
I know that if you lock (or unlock) with the key fob and don't open a door within 90 seconds it will lock itself.

I found some help finding some words......

Non-Passive Alarm: Alarm in which action on your part is required in order for it to be activated. Most insurers will offer a discount if your automobile is armed with a non-passive alarm - but a slightly greater discount if it has a passive alarm.

Passive Alarm: Alarm in which your action is not necessary in order for it to be activated. Most insurers will offer discounts for cars armed with passive alarm systems that are even greater than cars with non-passive alarms.

Is this alarm on all Tundra's or is it optional? I always lock my truck when I get out of it so it would great for me.

Garage
It's if you go in and get it turned on in techstream. It doesn't come stock like that.

Try it out and understand how it works. If you turn off the ignition, and remove the key, and then open and close any door, the security indicator light will be on solid. If you open the door anytime during the delay, it will go back to disarmed mode. Otherwise, it will start flashing. Then, if you open the door anytime after it starts flashing, the light will go back to fully lit, and give you the delay before it goes into alarming mode, unless you disarm by either starting the vehicle or pressing unlock or using the lock cylinder.

The key is to just hit the unlock button before you open it ANY time. If it's locked, then obviously, but even if it isn't, do it anyway to disarm the system.

It is an optional feature.
I installed the GBS (Glass Break Sensor) myself, then had the dealer turn my factory alarm on. My alarm does not arm automatically after 30 seconds. It only arms if I click the lock button on the remote. I leave my pickup unlocked at home all the time. Every morning I open the door without the alarm going off.

You don't need to disabled the alarm, just turn off the automatic arming.
